The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) in Delta State has said that it prosecuted 42 traffic offenders and secured the conviction of one.
The Sector Commander, Mr Rindom kumven, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Asaba on Saturday that the offenders were charged with 115 traffic offences.
Kumven said that one was convicted for dangerous driving and assault on a road marshal on duty.
The sector commander said that Mrs Victoria Ghomoria. Magistrate presided over the Mobile Court which tried the offenders.
He said it was disheartening that despite FRSC’s vigorous campaigns against violation of road traffic rules, motorists in the state had continued to disobey the laws.
“All we are doing is just to safeguard the lives of road users but some people have decided to throw caution to the wind.
“Traffic offenders are apprehended on a daily basis for one offence or the other. We advise that they should obey the rules to save their lives,” he said.
On installation of speed limit device, he said many commercials drivers had yet to comply with the directive, advising such road users to install the device in their own interest.
